Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product My first Generac was a 7.5kw for a large home of about 5K sq ft. Worked fine for about 16 years, covered 70% of home functions - generally more than enough to be comfortable and survive. Was rusty and finally a board failed. The new model is a 10K wifi capable unit. Looks great, works great and takes care of about 90% of our home, which again is more than enough - about the only thing not covered is the AC, but since I am in Northern US - not a big deal! Just Super - get one - you won't be sorry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worry free form Power Failure. Now, I don't have to worry about the power going out. That in itself is a relief.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality product Quality product with perfect installation by Blackout generators out of Oklahoma City. It works very well as 3 days after installation a power outage happened and the Generac generator started up and worked perfectly. I highly recommend these units from Generac for their durability and reliability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great quieter than others! Actually this is my second Generac generator after 17 years on the first one, (although it still worked) I wanted to have the piece of mind that everything would work in the future, also technology has changed this model is quieter and more economical to operate and the wi fi feature is a good thing ! Generac's local dealer was great to work with, prompt, and delivers service after the sale. Hopefully this one will last 17 years +

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Highly Recommend I live in Southern Ontario, Canada, where the winters can get chilly and snowstorms are frequent. With all the talk in the media ref massive Grid Outages, I decided to have this model installed. As I live alone, I have no problem powering my whole house, if required. I do have Natural Gas: Furnace, Hot Water tank, Fireplace and BBQ; the Genny also runs off of Natural Gas. The install team was friendly and very professional, and their work was neat and tidy. Although I have not had any outages yet, it does give me peace of mind...
